Sorry for the lack of posting. Blogger was down earlier today, my internet was down yesterday (well, technically not down, but really slow), and I was busy on Sunday.
Anyway here is all the news:
• Phil Kessel has been recalled from Providence and will play tonight in Ottawa. This will be his first NHL appearence since he underwent surgery for testicular cancer in early December. Yan Stastny, who was recalled from Providence to take Kessel's place, was assigned back to Providence.
• Zdeno Chara will not play in Ottawa tonight. He is still hurting from a lower body injury sustained during Thursday's game against Toronto.
• Brad Stuart is in California with his wife, they are expecting their first child.
• Jonathan Sigalet was recalled from Providence to fill in for Stuart. (What a bad choice. Our defense is hurting and Providence has Mark Stuart and Nathan Dempsey to offer, but no, we recalled Sigalet.) I hope Sigalet can play! Here are what I think the lines will be (It's just a guess):
Axelsson - Savard - Murray
Boyes - Bergeron - Sturm
Mowers - Primeau - Donovan
Chistov - Kessel - Tenkrat
Mara - Alberts (look for these two to play at least thirty minutes each)
York - Jurcina
Lashoff - Sigalet
